Cintron is a guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter who is a founding member of the group Cintron, a band that dominated the tri-state club circuit during the 1980s.

He also performed in the Las Vegas production of Queen’s musical “We Will Rock You” and played with the Trans Siberian Orchestra and Enrique Iglesias.
Miranda’s influences and musical palette range from roots, Americana, jazz, pop, heavy rock and everything in between. His touring experience began in the early 80s in and around the New York City club scene and has become the choice player for the likes of Brian May, Paul Rodgers, and many other top-tier performers and musicians.
On February 12, the Como Brothers will perform from 3-4 p.m. Matt and Andrew Como are musicians (singers, songwriters and performers) from Long Island who are passionate about their songwriting, heartfelt lyrics, and recording original music. Combining a pop-and-rock, easy-listening sound with a blues vibe, they have written and recorded multiple albums and EPs of original songs. Their latest songs have been recorded with Grammy-nominated engineer Kenta Yonesaka at Germano Studios in New York City. Matt and Andrew have toured the East Coast performing at venues such as the Hard Rock Café and The Cutting Room in New York City, along with performances around the country from Hollywood California to Texas’ South by Southwest, Florida, Boston, New York City and more.

Network’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians, MTV’s The Real World, and The Oxygen Channel’s Best Ink and on global in-store playlists for H&M, Zara, Pull Bear, among others.
